Canon 1ds Mark II

Post by kurageart »

Hi, I tried both on windows 10 64 bit and debian , The software connects to the camera (it shows it), but all I get is a black screen.. I guess this camera is very old. Do you know if I can make it work somehow?

Canon 1DS Mark II (Windows 10, Android)

Post by technet2 »

Dear qDslrDashboard,
we use in my family Canon EOS cameras: 60D, 500D and 1DSmk2.
We like this camera very much and I see that many users like and use 1DSmk2 still:

In December I found your program in GOOGLE PLAY.
60D and 500D are working very well with your software.
1DSmk2 does not work properly. Of course I do not expect live view ;)
Windows 10 and Android versions detect camera, but does not switch to the device screen menu (only the connection screen menu is possible). After any press of a button on the camera the following uncontrolled exit from the program .

Is there any solution? Maybe special USB, camera or program settings?
If not, can you share me lastest good Windows/Android version for Canon EOS 1DS Mark II ?

Probably it lacks the PTP commands that the newer models have. Unfortunately Canon does not release any documentation for their cameras.

I can't help with programming...
but I can test it thoroughly if you prepare something
